Sexy and funny and sad in turn, A Box of Bees mixes family narratives and the art and science of beekeeping in an engaging, sensual first collection of poetry. These poems juxtapose gentle, sweet pleasures with very real dangers: hed received thousands of stings. Only a beekeeper could have survived that many. Other poems tell us of Emilys family and of growing up, of her travels and of falling in love; all with fondness, honesty and charm. An assured and confident debut, A Box of Bees won the 2004 Adam Foundation Prize.

In his controversial autobiography Peeling the Onion, G nter Grass described his life between the ages of twelve and thirty, before he had achieved worldwide fame as a writer with The Tin Drum. Now, in The Box, he finds a means of continuing the narrative from the early 1960s to the early 1990s through the involvement of his eight children from four different relationships. They are cunningly introduced as semi-fictionalised puppets yielding to their father's eightieth birthday wish that they should gather to record on tape their collective impressions of him. By standing back in this way from his own autobiography, Grass manages to distance himself from his monumental public image as a political campaigner and writer of contested fiction. Claiming that his children are, like it or not, part of his life and character, he emphasises instead the most private part of his life and, in nine short chapters, opens it up to the public gaze. Disappointments, jealousies and feelings of neglect are chalked up by his progeny against a father who was often away or otherwise absented himself on account of his compulsion to write. A general family harmony is, however, in evidence, and ascribed to the influence and friendship of quirky photographer Maria Rama, to whom this book is dedicated. Her camera is the 'box' of the title, endowed with some magical qualities in the telling and portrayed as a bridge between father and children. She is the real hero of his literary autobiography and renders this most public of authors peculiarly accessible, human and sympathetic.
